The Peace Centers program began in 2002, and there are now more than 1,300 alumni who work in more than 115 countries. This year, The Rotary Foundation received over 800 applications endorsed by a Rotary district for just 117 fellowship awards. Of the four candidates endorsed by District 5950 for the 2021 Rotary Peace Fellowship, three were selected as finalists and one was selected as an alternate. That’s an amazing success rate, and speaks volumes to the way our Clubs and District recruits and supports candidates throughout the application process.
